Item 8.01.         Other Events.


On April 29, 2021, DiaMedica Therapeutics Inc. (the “Company”) announced that its Board of Directors established Thursday, July 15, 2021 as the date of the Company’s 2021 annual general meeting of shareholders (the “2021 AGM”). The exact time and location of the 2021 AGM will be specified in the Company’s proxy statement for the 2021 Annual General Meeting, which it anticipates will be printed on or about May 28, 2021 and sent or made available to shareholders commencing on or about June 3, 2021.


Since the date of the Company’s 2021 AGM has changed by more than 30 days from the date of last year’s Annual General Meeting (the “2020 AGM”), shareholders who, in accordance with Rule 14a-8 under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, wish to present proposals for inclusion in the proxy materials relating to the 2021 AGM must submit their proposals so that they are received by us at our principal executive offices no later than the close of business on May 14, 2021, which the Company believes is a reasonable time before it prints and mails its proxy materials. The proposals must satisfy the requirements of the proxy rules promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and as the rules of the SEC make clear, simply submitting a proposal does not guarantee that it will be included. Any other shareholder proposals, including director nominations, to be presented at the 2021 AGM (other than a matter brought pursuant to SEC Rule 14a-8) were required to have been given in writing to our Corporate Secretary and delivered to or mailed and received at our registered office no later than the close of business on March 2, 2021, the date that was three months before the anniversary of the 2020 AGM.


In addition, since the Company will no longer be filing its definitive proxy statement for the 2021 AGM within 120 days of its fiscal year end, the Company intends to file on or before April 30, 2021 an amendment to its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 on Form 10-K/A to include the information in Part III of Form 10-K since such information will no longer be incorporated by reference from the Company’s definitive proxy statement for the 2021 AGM.







Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
